Beta-Alanine 1-2g 3X a day
caff. a pre-WO with these would be nice.
I LOVED N2KTS and use it along with ASGT and guranimo . i alternate them.
great stuff. if you have to pick from the above i would pick N2KTS.LG Sciences Board Rep

One that gives you the energy you want to have productive workouts, 3-5g of creatine, and 2g beta-alanine, then add another 2g at another time of the day of beta-alanine. Add some bcaa to that pre-wo and you would be good to go man.

I have been meaning to take Assault, would 1 scoop be okay for cost?
Yeah i've been mainly aiming for performance increase.
My post workout shake consists of, protein, carb, beta alanine, glutamine, creatine.

Re post-workout, I would drop the glutamine - since literature is conflicted over whether or not it actually does anything, and from my own personal research consider it a waste of time and money using unless you are completely sedentary - but that's just me.

Cheers for the tips Rosie, do you use any intra workout such as xtend or intrabolic?
Missed out, i'm taking Taurine post workout too in capsule form, is pre and post taurine good timing for dosage?

No, I do not use intraworkout products at all - I drink water only during training.
If you're not using Taurine during training, then pre and post-training is fine to dose it.

Meso is a great product but another option with no stims is musclefeasts anabolic ignite the profile is great and more importantly dosed right.

[quote=bikeswimlive;2856190]I'm the retard? You are the one looking for a PWO aimed at "strength" when you could just eat a solid protein based pre-workout meal.
So your telling me that nothing other than protein can help with strength? Nice... Your just making yourself look worse mate.

wish it didnt have the niacin in it? I feel like that would cause me to have hot flashes which i seem to get easy with supplements. Otherwise, profile looks great.

That or ditch natty and educate yourself on DS.
Are we on the same page now?

Dosing stimulants for the first time in ages made me significantly stronger in the gym to the point I repeatedly checked the dumbbells I was using to make sure they were the right ones. My full review for it was in the N2KTS thread.
Pre workout- caffeine, geranium, other stimulants (definition of natural can be argued as they are often produced synthetically).
Not necessarily a pre workout but creatine and beta alanine both have solid research behind them.

There is no reason to need carbs to hit you that quickly. The anabolic window is quite a bit longer than "30 minutes postworkout".
Oats are a better form of carb to begin with for muscle building and body composition purposes, and since you dont have to worry about absorption time postworkout, even a high quality meal would be better than a protein shake.
Shakes are for convenience purposes (and a great way to add a snack with some protein value)

I'll suggest Lit Up as a choice where I saw (in the beta version, with just a handful of samples) at least a significant jump in intensity which seemed to translate to strength. Whether that would have kept up through an entire tub I can't tell, but its worth mentioning.

It does make you stronger in the gym if taken between 30 minutes and an hour before training for levels to reach their peak concentration in the blood.
On another note, carbs after workout can be debated because in theory, glycogen replenishes when no food at all is ingested and muscle protein synthesis isn't as short term as the post workout 'window of opportunity'. It is still a liquid meal for quick absorption that can improve the cortisol:testosterone ratio, improve muscle protein synthesis and most importantly, get the nutrition and calories in to help build muscle (if that is your goal).

Ill second easy here, i enjoy lit-up alot. Idk about DAA and its sides, but im willing to put a full tub to the test to see what happens.

Ive been using sizeon mp during training, it has 40g of carbs, seems to help in the endurance department. After my tub runs out ill be using peptopro with bcaa during training and ill compare recovery and endurance effects. I never know what is worth my money or not anymore lol.

So far the only products ive ever truely liked are. Purple wraath, beta-alanine, mcc/creatine nitrate, alcar, and a few pres (lit-up, jack3d, white flood, novem). Xtend is ok too, dont notice any effects other then basic bcaa effects. This industry is getting pretty bad.

Guys, some of these pre workout's don't contain creatine. I do find creatine nitrate to be a tad expensive (currently using mono post and off days with nitrate pre).
Any creatines you would recommend me adding to instead of the nitrate due to cost? Heard a few people brag about creatine magnesium chelate?
